The Southwestern Difference

Providing an academic, social and spiritual framework for life.

We provide you with the framework, curriculum and learning environment to explore, grow and define your faith.

SWAU Campus Life

Our community is important to us. We're proud to foster a tightly knit community with lasting connections. From our open campus to our diverse student body and staff, you're welcome here.

Outstanding Faculty

Enjoy a close relationship with qualified and approachable faculty members, thanks to our low teacher/student ratio and small-group, collaborative learning.
